President Trump signed an executive order on health-care issues that includes protections for people with pre-existing conditions. The Affordable Care Act already does that, but the Trump administration wants the Supreme Court to overturn it.
Turkey and some human rights groups accuse Greece of pushing migrants out to sea. Greece denies it. The Greece Coast Guard says Turkey often directs migrant boats toward Greece.
And the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will lie in state at the US Capitol on Friday. She is the first woman to receive that honor. Thousands paid their respects to Ginsburg at the Supreme Court over the past two days.

RON HARRIS: This is AP News Minute. President Donald Trump was met with boos and chants of "Vote Him Out" as he appeared at the Supreme Court to honor the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Trump, accompanied by First Lady Melania, was seen wearing a mask as he stood behind one of the court columns Thursday morning. The president has said he will announce his choice to replace Ginsburg on Saturday.
An arrest citation says video has been recovered that shows 26-year-old Larynzo Johnson shooting at two police officers who were wounded during protests in Louisville over a grand jury's decision in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor. The citation says Johnson was among a crowd in downtown Louisville that had been told to disperse after setting fires and causing property damage.
One of China's pharmaceutical companies behind a leading COVID-19 vaccine candidate says its vaccine will be ready by early 2021 for distribution worldwide. The CEO of SinoVac Biotech Ltd. vowed to apply to the US Food and Drug Administration to sell CoronaVac in the United States if and when the vaccine passes its third and final round of testing in humans.
And an enigmatic painting from Renaissance master Sandro Botticelli will go on auction next year, and art watchers will be seeing if it fetches more than its eye-watering $80 million estimate, despite the pandemic. Botticelli's 15th-century portrait of a nobleman in "Young Man Holding a Roundel" is the highlight of Sotheby's Masters Week sale series in New York in January.
